Should I paint the cultist leader's ccw the same scheme as the power sword on the right? It won't actually be a power sword but for aesthetics should I paint it fancy?

I love the effect, the purple is top notch, however I would be inclined to keep that for power swords if that is your general theme.

"You are like a son and together we have all but conquered the galaxy. Now the time has come for me to retire to Terra. My work as a soldier is done and now passes to you for I have great tasks to perform in my earthly sanctum. I name you Warmaster and from this day forth all of my armies and generals shall take orders from you as if the words came from mine own mouth. But words of caution I have for you for your brother Primarchs are strong of will, of thought and of action.

I have to say it looks brilliant so why not use it.

while the purple scheme is nice, I agree with Brokksamson: save the fancy effects for actual power swords to avoid confusion on the table. wysiwyg and all that

I could do it as blue, maybe just a little bit, to display that it was his commissar's sword before he went renegade? Hrmm, I understand how it could be confusing. However, I blame GW for making this model look like he needs to be wielding something powerful, but in actuality he's a wuss.

Sorry to dredge this back up again. I haven't been able to paint for a while. I moved and just got my painting desk set up again. Here's the semi-finished version. I think it may be a better choice than the power weapons purple effect.
